the cold of winter, the dead of night,
we left that place and were never going back.

a story much less about glory,
but more of preservation,
the citys lights shined, calling,
so we ran into the night.

and in our little town they searched on, long into the days,
we tried to grow into our surroundings, but we were never meant to stay,
the days drifted into years as we figured out our new place,
clinging to our dreams, too big to carry home.

im just lucky that i got out while i could,
this town has a way of burying you.

in the graveyards of our hometowns and things we left behind,
we shut the door on sentiments and look forward to find,
an overwhelming sense of comfort as these skyscrapers embrace us.
